There is a female national kabaddi representative with a unique history who promoted Korea to the world as Miss Korea and also served as a special forces officer.
Reporter Moo-hyung Lee covered Woo Hee-jun, who risked his life again to pursue an Asian Games medal.
A contestant who radiates charm with an elegant smile and hot dance.
This is Woo Hee-jun, Miss Korea 2019.
Woo Hee-jun, who went to world competitions to스포츠토토 publicize the beauty of Korea, was commissioned as a second lieutenant the following year and became a soldier.
He did well in the military, even being deployed overseas as a special forces soldier, but Woo Hee-jun chose to be discharged in June of this year.
She is to represent the country in kabaddi at the Hangzhou Asian Games.
[Woo Hee-jun/National Kabaddi Representative: “I started playing kabaddi at the age of 22, and I’m turning 30 this year. I think it’s no exaggeration to say that I spent most of my 20s playing kabaddi. It’s fate, seeing as I’ve been doing it for 7-8 years. I think so.”]
There are still many people in Korea who do not know about Kabaddi, a popular sport in India, so we kindly introduce the sport.
[“This is a system where, if you return safely to your own half after making a touch, you score points equal to the number of touches.”] [“To
put it simply, all you have to do is catch it and prevent the attacker from returning to his own half. Like playing tag…” ]
Injuries have become a daily occurrence due to the nature of the sport, which involves hard training and physical fights that make you laugh.
There is only one reason why Heejun Woo lives today.
This is for the Asian Games medal that I unfortunately missed in Jakarta five years ago.
[“If we win a medal this time, it will be the first women’s kabaddi medal, and we will work hard to win the gold medal with good results. Fighting kabaddi!”] [“Korea kabaddi team! We won, gold medal!
